In last few decades, as a result of the advances in microelectromechanical systems, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have gained a considerable attention due to their low-cost, low-power and small-scale sensor nodes which are used to integrate sensing, processing, communicating capabilities to solve many different real world problems. The placement of sensor nodes is a very important step to cover the theater of these application areas. Increasing the coverage of WSN system is one of the important research interests to determine the quality of service of the system. The location of sensor nodes can be determined by humans to increase the coverage area. However, in the remote or hostile environments, the random deployment of sensor nodes is needed to be used. In this paper, the different random deployment techniques have been studied, and the experimental results are obtained have been shared to show the effectiveness of these techniques. Finally, the alternative approaches are mentioned to guide the researchers, as well.
